Zac, Taylor and Isaac Hanson who form the group Hanson stopped by this week to talk with Ron Bennington at the Sirius XM studios. The three brothers are best known for their smash hit Grammy nominated song “MmmBop.” Because of their quick success at such a young age, some people wrote them off as a flash-in-the-pan pop group, but there is much more to Hanson than meets the eye. They’re all grown up with kids of their own now, and recording under their own label. Excerpts from the interview appear below.
Isaac and Taylor Hanson are in Cannes looking for international distribution for their new album, Shout It Out. The album is released on their own label 3CG, which they formed in 2003.
As well as releasing their own records on the label, the three brothers are using the company as a base from which to explore and respond to what they say is “an industry in flux,” and to find new ways to assist artists to connect with their fans. “It’s impossible to replicate the relationship that develops when a band really connects with their fans, but that’s what we’re looking at trying to do,” Taylor said. He added that while social networking sites can help facilitate and reinforce the artist-fan relationship, there is still more that can be done.
The new Hanson album may be called Shout It Out, but the boys didn’t have to scream to get our attention. We spoke to the soft-spoken and oldest brother, Isaac, who talks about their fifth studio album, which performer he would like to collaborate with, and their relationship with Weird Al.
